Steps to access Financial Aid Self Service Portal.  If you have applied to more than one of the SD Board of Regents Universities, you may receive more than one email.  You will only need to use one of these emails to log into the system.  Once you log into the system, you will be able to see your financial aid information for all Universities. 

Resolution

Note: Financial Aid Self Service is only accessible once you have been awarded financial aid.  The Financial Aid Department will send you an e-mail when you have been awarded.
